I like the idea of a micro-server, with application-level functionality
implemented in "user space".
These are some righteous chatbots, though. They'll need a much deeper level
of knowledge about the state of a server than is allowed to a typical client.
And they'd be doing stuff you wouldn't normally associate with a chatbot.
Off-hand I'd say make all the chatbots as network services, maybe over
